ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Author and radio host Garrison Keillor will read selections from his new book of poetry in St. Paul next month.

Keillor will read from his book "O, What a Luxury: Verses Lyrical, Vulgar, Pathetic & Profound," at the Fitzgerald Theater on Oct. 2 and 3.

The readings will be recorded for an audio companion to be released later.

The events are free and open to the public, but tickets must be obtained ahead of time. Tickets can be picked up at Keillor's bookstore, Common Good Books in St. Paul, or at the Fitzgerald box office.

Keillor will hold a book signing immediately after each of the readings.

Keillor's radio show, "A Prairie Home Companion," draws about 4 million listeners weekly on more than 600 public radio stations nationwide.
